             Heroes on the Water
Heroes on the Water helps veterans from all branches of the United States military unwind using the therapeutic qualities of fishing from kayaks.

Founded in 2007, their unique kayak fishing program allows participants a chance to decompress from the stresses associated with combat and the physical rigors of rehabilitation. Warriors enjoy these benefits while on guided fishing trips held in local communities around the country and across Texas.
